In his new position, Mr. Tamhane will be in charge of the club’s functional areas including technical, non-technical, finance, operations and administration.

“The appointment as CEO of Bengaluru FC is an honour for me and I would like to thank the owners of the club for bestowing their faith in me and for this opportunity. While the appointment will see a different designation to go with my name, my commitment to the club and its progress stays the same as it was when we started this journey in 2013.
